About Me

For years, Gordon represented the world's largest insurance carriers in varried and complex litigation and coverage cases. He successfully represented hundreds of clients and appeared in over 30 county trial courts, 3 federal district courts, 3 courts of appeal and the State Supreme Court. Now, he uses that experience representing victims of life-altering tragedies and has won millions of dollars for his clients.


In addition to his experience as a litigator, Gordon brings a keenly developed ethical sense to everything he does. As a director for the Max and Anna Levinson Foundation, Gordon has donated thousands of dollars to numerous charitable organizations and is an exemplary member of his community. Gordon is a major supporter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving and sits on that organization's Advisory Board, he has obtained support grants for several schools and synogogues in his area and he is a loving and dedicated husband and father.
